BERCHTESGADEN, GERMANY - JUNE 11: Members of the local fire brigade and rescue team speak with the media at their coordinating center near an underground cave where an explorer is lying injured 1,000 meters below on June 11, 2014 near Marktschellenberg, Germany. The man, along with two colleagues, was exploring the Riesending vertical cave, which is over 20km long and up to 1,148 meters deep, when he was struck by rocks and severely injured. Since then specialist rescue workers from Switzerland and Italy have arrived to help with the arduous rescue effort, which could take up to several more days and even weeks.
